Faith Formation Program

Thank you for looking to us to join you in faithfully fulfilling the promise that you made at your child’s Baptism: to be their first teachers in the ways of faith. Faith formation is more than a subject to be taught, it is an invitation to a way of life. Let’s work together to teach your children how to be happy, not rich. So that when they grow up they’ll know the value of things, not merely the price.

Discovering my Faith is designed to help 5-6 year olds become more familiar with the church and their faith. Each child receives their own book, learns and practices their prayers and begins to understand the important times  in the liturgical year.

First Communion Preparation, a two year program in preparation for First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation.

Continuing Faith Formation  For those who have made their First Communion , this group helps your child to continue to grow in our faith and deepen their involvement in the church as they learn more about being Jesus’ friend.


Our program consists of a two year process; teens should be 14 years old or first year in high school. Classes will be on Wednesday’s 7pm – 8:45pm.


  • Copy of the Baptism certificate (for those who will enter the two year program for First Communion preparation)
  • $75.00 donation
